KA-POW! Superhero Charity Ball

The 2016 Umbrella.co.uk ‘Employees of the Month’ were rewarded with a ticket to the When You Wish Upon a Star charity ball last Saturday night.

A spectacular welcome by storm troopers and Darth Vader was followed by a champagne reception, superhero glitter booth, dinner and entertainment.

Batman, Cat Woman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman all partied with Umbrella.co.uk staff along with a host of Corrie and Emmerdale stars until the early hours.  

Some of the Umbrella.co.uk ladies were left a little hot under the collar by Spiderman’s superhero outfit and Louise took a shine to Batman! Matt and Steve were caught on video perfectly executing the Spice girls A-Z Rap and Annie bagged the most celebrity selfies.
